NEW SONG MARKS SECOND PRE-ORDER TRACK FROM NEW ALBUM
‘AND JUSTICE FOR NONE’
Today, Thursday, April 19, the multi-platinum, hard rock band Five Finger Death Punch have unveiled the new song “Sham Pain,” off their long-awaited seventh studio album AND JUSTICE FOR NONE, due out May 18. The new song marks the second of three brand new pre-order tracks and follows last week’s release “Fake” (out 4/6) which generated just under 1 million streams in the U.S. during its first week and made the viral chart on Spotify in multiple countries.

“’Sham Pain’ is a lyrical snapshot of probably the biggest, yet the most chaotic year of this band’s career,” says guitarist ZOLTAN BATHORY. “Everyone has a different way of dealing with the moments when life hands them lemons…some complain and some make lemonade. Us, we pour gasoline on it and then hit it with a rocket launcher. Sarcasm has always been our ‘Art of War’ (if from naming the band ‘Five Finger Death Punch’ you haven’t figured it out yet), but just wait until you see the video we made for this song.”

Five Finger Death Punch’s current single, “Gone Away” (their own rendition of The Offspring’s 1997 hit single) has received over 27 million streams in the U.S., is currently charting #2 on Active Rock and topped the iTunes rock and metal charts globally. Check out the official video for “Gone Away” and the lyric video.
